Young Quinn Smith was an easy pick for Zen 2017; he is very development oriented, has unmatched discipline and a great skill base for a young player. He asks smart questions and puts any advice you give him into practice ASAP. Quinn has great endurance and is a key component of our D line, especially when he really turns up his handler defense. His throwing is calculated and accurate and he’s not afraid to pull out a precision huck when the opportunity presents itself. Often the winner of dirtiest front-of-practice-jersey, he’s all effort and determination all the time.
What Quinn’s Teammates Say:
We suspect Young Quinn Smith is actually an old man. While bringing the average age of the team down, he also brings up the average maturity. Our resident Harry Potter, he’s level-headed, patient, smart and a joy to be around. Taking everything in stride, he doesn’t get frustrated and uses every opportunity to further develop his skillset. His transition from the single gender junior system to the adult mixed system is seamless. We’re lucky to have this understated leader in the making. To up his game, we recommend he work on his flare and upper body strength.
“He’s out to prove himself…but he’s aready won our hearts.”
“Quinn makes me feel stupid. He’s too smart for a 19 year old.”
“Good at nipple golf.” #nocontext
“He taught me to dab.” #swoon
